House committee to hold 2 hearings on PawSox stadium plan

The House Finance Committee has scheduled two hearings this month on legislation about public financing for a new stadium for the Pawtucket Red Sox.

The first hearing - scheduled for Oct. 10 at the State House - is designed to give committee members a chance to review the legislation including the terms of the deal, the soundness of its assumptions, and implications for the city and the state.

The hearing will include representatives of the PawSox and the City of Pawtucket. There will be no public testimony at the first hearing.

A second hearing - scheduled for Oct. 18 - will focus on public testimony.

Written testimony will also be accepted in advance of or during the hearing.

The Senate Finance Committee has already held two hearings on the proposal.
